I am trying to patch the RH 7.3 kernel 2.4.18-3 for extended
attributes.  I've downloaded the kernel 2.14.18 patch from the
http://acl.bestbits.at site.  I've followed the instructions at that
site but after extracting the file I get the following error message
(right after 2 patches complete successfully);
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
patching file Makefile
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file Makefile.rej
can't find file to patch at input line 134
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
--------------------------
|diff -Nur linux-2.4.18/arch/arm/kernel/calls.S
linux-2.4.18ea/arch/arm/kernel/calls.S
|--- linux-2.4.18/arch/arm/kernel/calls.S       Mon Oct  8 19:39:18 2001
|+++ linux-2.4.18ea/arch/arm/kernel/calls.S     Sun Mar 10 15:07:14 2002
--------------------------
File to patch: 24
24: No such file or directory
Skip this patch? [y]  
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The command that I used to patch the kernel is as follows:


/tmp/eas/linux-2.4.18ea-0.8.26.diff

Can someone tell me what the problem is?  Has anyone completed this
patch successfully and can give me some pointers?
